left wing. it's too bad more media organizations cannot find a way to be unbiased. and john says they're more fair than last time around during the 2008 primary and general election, only because they want the republicans to think they have a real shot so the money coffers on the right will feel more comfortable donating large sums of money. finally maurice says the mainstream media deliberately are excluding coverage of any news that reflects badly on the obama administration. wabc radio in new york, for example, reported on the slightly better job report for this week, but made no mention of the poor g.d.p. and durable goods numbers yesterday. and we will talk about those issues with maria bartiromo of cnbc when she comes out and joins us in about 15, 20 minutes. d.w. emails in, the candidates are the result of the media. the media does not reflect the report on them, it creates them. when a candidate complains about the media, it's like a mind where the ego complains about the sub-conscious, pure illusion. becky says of course the mainstream media is biased. it will take a blitheri
's hear from john in pennsylvania on the independent line. good morning. will the vice-presidential candidates impact your vote? are you there? let's try missoni in fort worth, texas. -- tony in fort worth, on the democratic line. caller: yes, i think it will impact the vote, for me in particular. during the primaries, i think mitt romney and saw that a generic candidate would probably beat barack obama. i think that's why he is not elaborate on any of his plans. then he chose paul ryan, who has a very distinguished voting record and he has written policies that are extremely right-wing. so i think that he has put himself between a rock and a hard place when you are looking at what he thinks and what paul ryan thinks. often conflict over their different views. host: everything happening over the weekend and this week is very busy under the umbrella of lots more polls coming out. here's one in the "washington times" -- the washington post says the race is tight but not in the key states. they point out to that nationally the race is not moved since early september. carol
: john, spring, texas, a republican at. caller: i think it would be crazy to eliminate the un. it tends to do a lot more good. i think our main problem is israel has 400 nuclear devices and the most advanced f-16's. that the major problem with the world. host: springfield gardens, ronald, and independents. -- an independent. caller: when the man said americans don't know history, he stole my fire. if they knew the history of iran, then maybe they would not be so fast to condemn them as being terrorists or whatever. it is important that people find out what happened and not just go by news pundits, because a lot of times they disregard history. as far as the u.n. is concerned, it is a good thing. t is just that they don't convene enough. bacon not convene another because they don't have the political backing to prevent the very powerful nations doing what they want to. so i'm not sure how great its doing. it's doing good on a peacekeeping side but on the prevention side needs a lot of help. host: what did you make of the u.n. efforts to try to go into syria earlier this year, to have a s
the supreme court. some construction taking place. next is john from indiana. the republican line, good morning. caller: if you look at the gallup polls, you can pretty much see that democrats are losing a lot. their registration between 2004 and until now. you look at the republicans and what they are not able to get across is the fact we have a big financial cliff that we are going to go over. nobody is worrying about that. i think third parties are going to gain a whole bunch by the fact that when our nation does go over the cliff financially or we have a lot more problems, people are going to leave the party. they are going to become more and more involved in what is happening in our nation. it has not been so much in the past. they just upset the elections for some of the candidates. i just think they will be more relevant in the future. as the tea party is not able to help out with the republicans, i think he will see a lot of people in the grass roots level leave the two parties and go to the third party. host: thank you for the call. jill stein just received a hundred $60,000 fr
: not really. host: john is on the independent line from maine. caller: yes, i will be watching. i'm a student of human nature, that's all. politicians will always be politicians. i'm not a fanatic on either side. i am just watching to -- their promises don't mean nothing. if they are not backed up with the congress and the senate, they don't mean anything. but it's nice to watch to see a what they will promise, if anything. i am from an old school of politics. i was brought up in new york at the tail end of tammany hall. they were not exactly straight -- anyway. i will watch out of curiosity to see how they present themselves more than anything else. i don't have a particular party. paul joins us on the republican line from west virginia. caller: when i am concerned about is the moderator. during the republican debates, fox news did one of the debates and that was -- they asked the more important questions and it was probably the best debate there was. but now we have four left-wing liberal moderator's and i am sure they will skew the debate. they will ask the questions in such a way that it
and then talk with john glastris in our final segment. he is with the washington monthly. he will talk to us about the consumer financial protection bureau and an article in the current edition of washington monthly. "too important to fail" is the title of. that segment will include your phone calls. we will be back after news from c-span radio. >> international news from the associated press says the protest has turned violent increase. police are using teargas and pepper spray on demonstrators who have been throwing molotov cocktails and bottles in athens anti--- following an government rally. it's a general strike against new austerity measures in greece. the pakistan taliban is granting amnesty to a cabinet minister who is offering a $100,000 reward for anyone who tells the neighbor of an anti-islamic film produced in the u.s. the film has sparked violent protests across the moslem world. the pakistani taliban spokesman says the minister's offer represents the true spirit of islam and so the taliban are taking the minister of their hit list. the pakistani government says the minister's r
changes. host: all right. rob, we're going to let you go. our next call will be coming from john on our line for independents, calling from florida this morning. go ahead, john. >> good morning. i just wanted to, first of all, i believe in check and balances in the constitution, and the united states says we should have. i don't want one party running anything. the bottom line is people -- i think 80% of the people in the united states don't even know the constitution, and for limited government, not as a progressive, which, by the way, is what obama is, a progressive, just like hillary clinton, who admitted she was. host: let's not go too far off the rails here. i understand that the constitution, the check and balances that the constitution refers to is between the legislative, the judicial, and the executive branch, and doesn't really mention the establishment of a two-party system. caller: you need a two-party system. look what happened the first two years -- even though it took obama two years to get the healthcare through, they still had everything right there. unless you have a c
